The fire was out in a little over an hour. Firefighters confirmed that there were no people inside. There were no injuries. Fire crews were kept on scene overnight for fire watch.
Fire Investigators determined that this fire was intentionally set. Damage was estimated at $220,000. Seattle Police Department will handle the criminal investigation.
